In Quarantine, you play the part of a taxi driver, desperate to escape from the violent prison city of Kemo. Deliver passengers to their destinations, so you can earn money to upgrade your cab, and take on undercover missions in the hope that somehow you can find a way out. An impressive array of cab-mounted weaponry will help you to survive.

There is a small bug/oversight in the game: If you earn more than $99,999 then your money becomes a minus figure, meaning you suddenly can't buy anything!
